President Bush heading to Miami to raise $$$

With polls suggesting several close congressional races in Florida -- including challenges to Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart -- President Bush heads to Florida Friday to raise money for the GOP.

The White House says Bush -- who has low popularity ratings but remains a formidable fundraiser -- will attend a fundraiser at a private residence in Coral Gables benefitting the Congressional Trust 2008, a joint fund-raising operation that benefits both the National Republican Congressional Committee and the Republican National Committee.

Following the fundraiser, Bush is to meet with Cuban-American community leaders, the White House says.

Bush hosted a fundraiser in Naples for the Diaz-Balarts several months back, but neither made the event, saying they had to cast votes in DC.

Mr. President if you want to visit Florida and help out the American people then have meetings with the residents, not your fund raising pals. The more time you spend in Florida the better the Democrats will do. Diaz-Balarts, Ros-Lehtinen, and McCain will continue to drop in the polls. Why are you meeting with Cuban-American "leaders"? Why not meet with the actual residents to hear the truth first hand about how tough it is on the streets of Miami and Ft. Lauderdadle. Cuban Americans, Hispanics, Blacks and Whites have seen your "policies" over the last 8 years and you are done! And just in case your were wondering, there are plenty of registered, Hispanics voters in Miami that are NOT of Cuban descent (Brazilians, Argetinians, Columbians, Central Americans of Many countries, etc.) and they are not happy with you either. Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

MCCAIN CAN'T BE TRUSTED BY CONSERVATIVES.

MCCAIN SECRETLY WANTS TO DO AWAY WITH SOCIAL SECURITY.

MCCAIN WILL PUSH OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING ON FLORIDA.

MCCAIN IS NO FAN OF CUBAN AMERICANS. MCCAIN THINKS CUBAN REFUGEES SHOULD BE TURNED AWAY.

MCCAIN WAS NO TOP GUN AVIATOR, IN FACT 3 CRASHES EARLY IN HIS CAREER LED NAVY OFFICIALS TO QUESTION OR FAULT HIS JUDGMENT.

McCAIN WILL CONTINUE THE DISASTROUS POLICIES OF THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION.


VOTE FOR A NEW DIRECTION. VOTE FOR OBAMA.

Unfortunately for Mr. Mac, his time is comming to late, and Ms. Barbie will not help him.

Come and rip those Cuban supporters. Charge them an arm and leg for that food, take all they have. For all I know, your time is limited and there's nothing you can do nor defend at this point.

i would much rather have miss barbie than a nwa

Obama is not a racist and McCain has no honor.
Johnny Mac committed adultery, crashed 3 planes, graduated at bottom of class, and was in cahoots with the bankers that caused this mess we are in today. Ms. Palin eloped and is unaware of the world.

Vote for honor, leadership, and hope for the future of America's strengths. Obama in November!
